care reform. last but not least the use of technology. we have the ability to share information with technology that we have today with their computers and the internet, have databases where we can share information with doctors and hospitals and they can keep the costs down and make sure that the consumer has good information and thorough information so that they can make the choice. it gives power to the consumer which i think we all appreciate and frankly at the end of the day i trust the consumer to make the decisions that are in the best interest for them. we have too much of a government mentality. we know best. we need to choose for you. you may make the wrong decision and i think that is wrongheaded. so let me conclude this part by saying what i'm talking about with utah here is a way of addressing this reform. it may not be the way. other states have different demographics. we have a young population in utah. we are the youngest in america. i am the oldest guy in utah. [laughter] if you compared our demographics with safe florida which has a lot more seniors compound th

care it is about discovering the cost as it is independent in the supply and demand, technology and all of the factors that set tom cruise's cost to $20 million there's a lot of illusions on health care and probably the most important in health care is the tale of two went in. elizabeth warren are geared in some ways corruptly that a lot of people applied for loans, subprimal loans without understanding what cost them with the disclosure and that this is one of the things congress could correct and did try to correct. let me talk about a second woman her name is becky and she's a 23-year-old who started work for the company. she expects to be really successful and she probably will be. she's an extraordinarily capable sales assistant promoted to seals woman. she's going to get to the top 1% of the income. she also thinks that she can never afford health care of her own. the system is such that even in the top 1% who is paying for the other 99 were but that's what she believes. of the cost increases by zero from now until she dies, becky will put $1.2 million in health care system. of th
that change and increasing the tempo is the role that technology played. i mean, obviously, we've seen the development of drones, we've seen the application of supercomputers. of one of the things that you did was move intelligence analysts out into balad, into your base there integrating everything up front. can you talk about that a little bit, the role that technology played? >> yeah. there are several things of technology that changed the fight. one is obvious, it was of predators. it wasn't drone strikes, it was drone surveillance. because you put a surveillance that give cans you full motion video means that anywhere on our force to include the guys on the ground could watch what the predator's watching in full-time video or realtime video. the real effect of that is several. one is where it used to take let's say 120 people to raid a target when only 20 were going inside, it takes 100 to secure it outside to make sure you don't get people reinforcing, what not. if you can do it from the air, you only send 20. now, the other hundred can hit five other targets. so we could hit six
, information technology, even in accounting and finance. my frequent visits to employers across the state affirmed these reports. our state needs a way to accurately measure employment on a real-time basis. we need a better way to quickly measure trends and identify workforce needs by region, so we're working with members of the legislature to enact a system to help us connect workers to jobs in areas of great need from current and future employers. [applause] during the past year we partnered with the wisconsin covenant foundation to provide grants to technical colleges, employers in various regions, to improve workforce development. the next step will come in the state budget as we align new resources with our critcall needs in the workplace of the just a few days ago we graduated the first class under the wisconsin workforce partnership program. diane joined the program because she was unemployed after having been laid off and was looking for a new career. diane has already been hired by a corporation in new holstein as a c and c operator. she started work literally yesterday. diane is
] additionally, technology has pushed us into a global marketplace, but far too many of our schools are lagging behind. the phones in our pockets have better internet access than some of the classes around our state. that's why i support further investing in our schools and using state resources to help school districts modernize and acquire today's technology. and yet we can and we will work together to invest in and improve our schools. in making even modest investments in early childhood education and technology improvements in our schools, i'm asking you to look beyond the meet, beyond this session -- beyond the immediate, beyond this session or each beyond the length of time that you and i get to serve in public office. and it's not always easy, investing now for later returns. but that's what leaders do. i'm asking you to look beyond the immediate in other areas too, including transforming the way that we deliver health care so we can create jobs and take care of those who need our help the most. to have a healthy economy, we need to have healthy citizens. for those of us with health insu
, a slow pace of technological change in traditional society means that once someone learns as a child, their information is still useful. but today, it means what we use in modern society is tobin is no longer useful six years later. and we older people are not fluent in the technology for it surviving in society. for example, i was considered outstandingly good as they stood in and multiplying because of i know how to use rules of math. today, this is utterly useless because any idiot today can multiply eight digit numbers accurately and conversely, incompetent at skills essential for everyday life. my family's first television set was acquired in 1948. only three knobs that i quickly mastered. an on-off switch, a volume knob, and there is a channel selector knob. today, just to watch television programs, i have a television set in my living room and i had to operate three tv remotes that i find utterly confusing, although my tone explained it to me. i have to bring in my son and asked him to talk me through it while i tried to push those wretched 41 buttons. but we do to improve the
as part of everyday life. finally, the slow pace of technological change in traditional society means that what someone learns as a child is still useful when that person as old, but the rapid pace of technological change today means that what we learn as children is no longer useful 60 years later, and we older people are not fluent in the technologies essential to survive in modern society. example, as a 15 year-old high-school student i was considered outstandingly good at multiplying 2-digit numbers because i had memorized the multiplication tables, and i know how to use logarithms an airport at manipulating a slight. today most location tables and logs and slide rules are utterly useless because today in the heat can multiplied eight digit numbers accurately and instantly with a pocket calculator. conversely, i command a 75 and incompetence and skills essentials for every day life, my family's first television set that required at 1948 amelie three laws of the quickly mastered, and of switch, a volume knob, and there was a channel selector not. today. just to watch television pro
that has lots of technology in the southern part of the district. some from microsoft and many other technology companies. by a medical device companies and also a very rich agricultural industry of dairy and berries and specialty crops the immigration is very important for many different aspects. i wanted to start with you. we talked about h-1b but you also talk good a start of the visa program and i wondered if you could elaborate what you think needs to be in such a program and how that would work in conjunction with the program. >> it would do wonders for seattle and new york and even more for silicon valley. there are literally tens of thousands of companies the would be started almost overnight if we gave these entrepreneurs or would-be entrepreneurs the ability to do that. they can start companies you could start a company that you cannot work for it. so we would suddenly have a boom in the entrepreneurship like before. it can be done independently with everything else we are doing. let's get that done. the big companies are lobbying very hard for it. they need it. there are d
but not least, the use of technology. we have the ability to share information with technology that we have today with our computers and internet, having databases where we can share information with doctors and hospitals. again, keep the cost down and make sure that the consumer has good information, thorough information and make the choice. this empowers the consumer, which is i think what we all probably appreciate. and, frankly, at the end of the day i trust the consumer to make the decisions that are in the best interest of them. we have too much of a government mentality that thinks well, we know best. we need to choose for you. because you may make the wrong decision. and i think that's just wrongheaded. so let me just conclude this part by saying that what i'm talking about in utah here is a way of addressing this reform. it may not be the way. other states have different demographics. we have a young population in utah, we're the youngest of in america. our meeting age is only 29.2 here's a picture i'm the oldest guy in utah. [laughter] but if you compare our demographics to, say o
it is about discovering that thing, that cost as if it is independent of the supply-demand technology and all the factors that set tom cruise cost at $20 million. there are a lot of illusions and health care and probably the most important in health care i think is illustrated what i would call the tale of two women. one is elizabeth warren. elizabeth warren argeo, and i think in some ways correctly that one of the issues of the financial crisis is a lot of people apply for subprimal loans without understanding what it costs them, the documentation and the disclosure and this was one of the things that congress would try to correct. the very same principle hiding from us the cost of fractions is the foundation of our health care system. let me talk about a second woman. her name is becky and she's a 23-year-old the started to work for my company. as a, i will talk about what health care is going to cost. she thinks someone else is magically paying for health care. on of the fascinating things is she was really successful, she probably will be. she's an extraordinarily capable sales assistant
states. we live in a mixed economy. it is regulated by technology, will which has been done very well. the most regulated industry is financial services. that's not surprising. secondly, government policy created a massive mis-investment in the real estate market and that bubble burst as all bubbles do, destroying trillions of dollars of wealth. also, the institute of wall street is a serious mistake. the mistakes were secondary and in that context, it had an incentive in government policy. almost everything we have done since the financial crisis started since we have been in the short term. it would radically reduce our standard of living in the long-term. even though there is a lot of economic qualities, the real one is philosophical. finally, if we don't change direction economically, united states faces some serious long-term problems. we are doing some very bad things to her children and grandchildren. so what happened? well, we deal too much residential real estate. we go to investing in technology, we should have spent less and save more and borrowed a lot less from foreigners
technology fields and many, many people in santa cruz, computer science. and that's a large -- a large part of her business. we do tax returns were living and we liked tax advisor services your and so in our business, we are not a products company your car business is people, people with knowledge, ideas, innovation, helping clients solve their most challenging management and technology problem. from around the world. with people who have industry expertise that we deploy in every time and quick manner. and time and speed is everything. so within our broad workforce, our larger u.s. workforce, you know, we complement our u.s. workforce with foreign workers. and mobility is very important, so we hire people from college campuses on -- we also use immigrant visas as well and green card. for people on h-1bs, or people, citizens working with deloitte. and then we also use, we look at people who have expertise and specialized knowledge from around the world that we can bring into the united states. so we leverage other -- but it really is a matter of leveraging those to ensure that our clients r
producer of oil in the country. why? we have the technology. those of you who remember the 6 million dollar man, lee majors, it's because we've had dramatic improvements in the technology and hydraulic brockton, horizontally but we've also had improvement in deepwater drilling and canadian oil sands development. so we've seen this technological improvements that have really dramatically changed the course of production that we would've never dreamed of. so what i'm going to close with is that we have an opportunity based on an ihs study to generate millions of jobs, trillions of investment, and billions if not trillions of federal, state and local revenues. we have the opportunity to do this just for nonconventional oil alone. so basically what we have right now is a choice. we can either make wise decisions moving over to develop, indeed all of the above resources, including oil, gas, coal, nuclear, renewables and so on, or we can repeat some mistakes of the past. in particular some of the proposals for taxing the oil and gas industry are repeated mistakes of the past. and we have potentia
to start that today. new technology we honor our emerging, changing the facts as so many thought that they knew had in our nation's energy discourse is really just not keeping a. it's time, perhaps despite that's a different perspectives to come together to address the crucial and difficult issues surrounding energy. desiring to hit the restart button, i've worked with my resource committee staff to prepare a report that we call energy 2020, a vision for america's energy future. often you'll see these nicely bound copies of reports that have been made and you look through them and look at the charts for you go to the section that is directly per btu and then it fades. i'm not going to let us say. it is incumbent upon me, my staff come in the energy committee to make sure what we do with this document we've been working on for a year now is to really utilize it, to use it is that luke rant, if you will. on the first thing i've got to tell you as we talk about this energy 2020 if there is no energy policy that is a perfect vision. but we recognize you've got the year 2020 perching
be, as a force, agile, flexible, quickly deployable, at the cutting edge of technology. that can be an effective force for the future. agility, flexibility, the ability to move fast in crisis happens. that is what distinguishes our defense policy in the united states. secondly, it was important for us to project power. into the pacific, also into the middle east. those are the key areas where we have some serious problems. north korea, ron, we need to have a power presence in most areas. that is where the greatest area for conflict was. we need to maintain a presence elsewhere in the world. it was developed with the idea, an innovative idea to send our forces into countries, latin america, europe, other places, to train and exercise and work with that country, to develop their capabilities. to develop new partnerships and alliances, so that they can become part of this security force for the future. fourth, we have to maintain more than one enemy at a time, having the capability to beat them. we have to be able to respond to both of those conflicts. confront an enemy and defeat a
historic advances in every universe, everything, medicine, technology, science, space exploration, technology of every kind, no world war iii. no nuclear exchange. so something worked pretty well. as flawed as that was. and they did something else that was particularly important in that they built coalitions of common interest. and i'm going to come back to that as i wind up my remarks. coalitions of common interest. because what they recognized if we were to, the world, avert another 50 years like the world had been through the first 50 years of the 20th century, then we were going to have to define relationships not by our differences, but by our common interests. and only then could we build foundations of mutual trust or mutual common interests in order to deal with the differences. you can't start with the differences. it took us a long time to figure that out. these leaders did have that figured out, and i'm going to come back to that point, because i think it's particularly relevant today. but what toi nby said about civilizations was very instructive. and he said that civi
grappling with is in this age of new technology what is an unreasonable search and seizure? okay matt all right? so we have talked about the government and can they fly over your home and new technologies being used that emanate to your home. we have had questions about wiretaps. we have had questions about gps navigators and tracking devices. and we will have many more. for sure, the forefathers had no idea that the computer and computer chips would exist. even benjamin franklin, i doubt very much that he knew. [laughter] that he ever in his wildest fantasies imagined what we had today. it debuted terms that are more specific than they did, we wouldn't have been given the opportunity to define this so they did a mixture of some very clear things. you can't quarter the militia in people's homes except in times of war. that is pretty specific. but there were many other things they talked about generally. the document gave us a concept. we are guided by that concept. >> what worries you about the constitution? are there any trends that you might have your eye on? >> are you a lawyer? i didn
this class and a chance for whether or not we can use the same technology that will create an enhanced e-book and use that technology to invite large numbers of students to take part and send in questions in question each other and get to know each other using the web. there are a lot of newfangled items going around about how this is presented. i am struggling to catch up with myself. i instructed me how to it to beat and twitter and facebook and all these other things. a lot of things like the enhanced e-book i can't do because i don't have an ipad. i do believe in the possibility of the media. if you're trying to a tell a legitimate story you need to take every resource, every chance you can to make connections. that is the novelty side of what i am presenting here and i'm interested in what you guys think about this, even the notion of repeating some source or using some of the language. states things together. the let me talk a little bit about ms. marin -- misremembering an hour and balanced sense of history, the urgency that i think it lies in this subject. while i want to do it,
of this history for yourself. so, i'm going to be at the mercy of technology here and see if i can get this to work. one of the first things i did when researching this book was to look at washington, d.c. as a whole. for years and years and years, washington, d.c. was a majority african-american city. i think the numbers are changing right now. but for a long time, washington, d.c. was an african-american majority city. so the question came to me. there are hundreds of statues in the city limits of washington, d.c. sitting on public property. some of these statutes had to be of african-americans i just knew. so i started looking around the city and trying to find out how many statues are there of real african-americans on public land in washington, d.c.? now, i want to be specific about what i am talking about. i am talking about statues of real african-americans, not models. for example, there are statues of african-americans in the korean war memorial. however, these are models. these are statues meant to represent all african americans who fought in the korean war. no one can look
and technological changes are empowering nonstate actors, like active this, corporations and terrorist networks. at the same time, we face challenges from financial contagion to climate change to human and wildlife trafficking that spill across borders and defy unilateral solutions. as president obama has said, the old post-war architecture is crumbling under the weight of new threats. so the geometry of global power has become more distributed and diffused as the challenges we face have become more complex and crosscutting. so the question we ask ourselves every day is, what does this mean for america? and then we go on to say how can we advance their own interests and also uphold a just, rules-based international order, a system that does provide clear rules of the road for everything from intellectual property right to freedom of navigation to fair labor standards? simply put, we have to be smart about how we use our power not because we have less of it. indeed the mite of our military and the size of our economy and the influence of our diplomacy and the creative energy of our people remain
on the applicants is important. using technology to verify claims that people make. i agree wholeheartedly that there cannot be a strict confidentiality provision in this. that's a dealbreaker. we can't prosecute all benefits fraud, so we have to have the ability to let an administrative process play out with those cases that are not going to go to yes attorney or be prosecuted by i speak we have to let uscis use its authority and tools like administrative removal to make sure that the people who are denied are not allowed to stay here anyway. that is a huge weakness and benefits programs right now. these are not small numbers of people that are benefiting from the fact that we tolerate so much fraud in this process. >> thank you. >> indifference -- let me be very brief. in the report published by immigration enforcement, we did identify gaps. one of the biggest gaps i think is frankly the either of my program about the fraudulent identification. that we do not have where we can say to the person ocean front of him or her is the person that the verification practices. we need to drasticall
, and there have also been technology advancements in places like iraq and afghanistan where we can survey of the borders. my friends on the arizona mexican border it gets as hot as 140 degrees and that is hard on people. as we have to do the technology side of testing what by the way they've been able to do and i am confident that we can make that progress to ensure our citizens that their lives are secure. we are in a secure building. every night to have drug people going across the property. they deserve security. but we can achieve that. we can achieve that and we are on the way to doing that. >> you said about six of the members are going to go with you. what can you see when you go to the border? >> first of all, they can see the fastness of the border to be the second thing they can see is the improvements that have been made. third, they can see the things that need to be done. talk to the men and women on the ground in the border patrol. the ones who are out there every day literally risking their lives to read there's nothing like having eyeballs and chuck and i found on the issu
of their economies rather than their military and political and technological changes are empowering nonstate actors like activists, corporations and terrorist networks. at the same time we face challenges from financial contagion to climate change to human and wildlife trafficking that defy unilateral solutions. as president obama's said, the old post-war architecture is crumbling under the weight of new threats. said the geometry of global power has become more distributed and diffused as the challenges we face have become more complex and crosscutting. so the question we ask ourselves every day is, what does this mean for america and then we go on to say how can we advance their own interests and also uphold a just rule-based international order, cut a system that does provide clear rules of the road for everything from intellectual-property rights to freedom of navigation to fair labor standards. simply put, we have to be smart about how we use our power not as we have less of it in light of our military and the size of our economy and the influence of our diplomacy and the creative energy of ou

[applause] >> thank you. thank you, massey, for your introduction. [inaudible] >> both dr. romer and mr. hennessy had to observation. you have someone who worked for republican president and another one who worked for democratic president to give stanford and cal. [laughter] spent they will share their views. hopefully that leads to a lot of enlightening conversation that we will have an also good questions and autistic so with that we'll start off with some of the defense of the week. we had earlier in the week and inauguration of president obama for a second term. getting into obama, and clearly the view, there's a lot of questions on how he is doing and what the administration is going to do, given what's happened in the last election. dr. romer, share some views given that you've wo
. and develop other approaches that we have in terms of technology being able to gather the kind of intelligence we need. >> and is that happening? >> yes, it is. >> i don't know if there are -- can you cite to a specific thing that is fostering this kind of change as a result of our tragedy in benghazi? >> i think the intelligence community recognizing the recommendations that came out of the accountability report are taking steps to try to ensure that gap is no longer exists. >> so in terms of just the coordination of that has -- there's some specific steps that are being taken to coordinate between the state intelligence community, and dod. >> that's correct. try to improve the ability to get the intelligence, get to the state department, and then state department based on that can make decisions as to whether or not they should request our help. >> now, in listening to your earlier testimony, i think that some of it was that there seemed to be gaps in terms of the information you were getting as what was happening in benghazi. so have steps been taken to make sure that those kinds of communi

that technology can and should change how we educate children is pretty remarkable. and there are schools in new york city, in john's state, where again let me be clear between testing and evaluation are i'm not a big live in a whole bunch of testing but where every single day teachers our understanding not what they taught but what their children learned. it's an important distinction. the goal of teachers is not to teach. the goal of teachers is to have their children learn. so every single day using technology, teachers have real-time feedback as to what their children learned that day. not once a year, but think about how empowered that is, to understand this is what my children learned and comprehended and need to move to the next level of this is what they didn't get. figure out a way to reach each to feedback on a daily basis so they come in the next morning with a specific game plan, instructional plan for that child. think a radically different that is any teacher teaching the class of 30 or 35 all the same way at the same time day after day after day, having no real insight into our my
fields, that's and science technology engineering and mathematics would be granted a green card upon graduation. this is sort of in adopting of senator jeff likes older proposal called -- called a stable and. i'm glad to see it in the. this is a very good mood but it's relatively small by comparison to the size of the entire system. the blueprint also talks vaguely about the looming backlog. so that is similar to legislative in the last couple years, that would mean removing the per country limitation on highly skilled green cards and workers coming in. as the system stands right now only 7% of workers in the program are allowed to come from a single country every year. leading to long backlogs for workers from places like india, china, mexico and the philippines. sometimes backlog for longer than a decade. so that would be a big improvement to the system. generally i think most people can agree that you have a very good reason to block highly skilled and educated immigrants from coming into the trendy. this seems like low-hanging fruit of any kind of immigration reform effort. and i
. without too many houses, houses never face. we should've invested in technology, manufacturing, education. we should've spent less and save more. we should've borrowed this from foreigners. the important thing people don't get, housing this consumption because people individually think they invested in the house. we can assume a house like another mobile. what they're really doing is over consuming. we had a massive overconsumption. it's analogous to eating the seed corn as analogous. protect millions of people headed to the the wrong thing. we talked and honda both houses to the mortgage bankers, presidential legal attorney. those millions of people try to learn how to do something it's productive in a global economy. in addition, construction which is their competitive. you try that manufacturing wages, which we did with this artificial construction boom in miniature of millions of manufacturing jobs overseas to places they can have china and initially people in india and china didn't know how to do the work while. for having a really difficult time getting those jobs back. they make a
to formulate a question about him, remember that this is another world technologically. and remained so until the rusher retired from "national review." his successor publisher said when he came right in afterwards it was still operating in the 1950s, that is, in 88, 89, still operating in the 1950s with carbon paper and secretaries who were treated as secretaries. i guess that's a polite term for sexist and it's not an important point to the more important point is, you know, carbon paper. rusher would not have been teamed on social media himself, were he still alive and active today. but he would have appreciated it. to get back to the point, it's an important one, this was an era when people communicated on paper, and they communicated at length on paper. that was a tremendous resource for my research at the library of congress are rusher's papers are. there's been sufficient evidence -- excuse me, sufficient interest in the rusher papers amongst scholars who are interested in the development of the conservative movement who i think more often than not are liberals. in the rusher papers th
in the senate proposal for improving technology on the border. well, they've been working on that. fbi net lasted five years, and then they finally abandoned it. they never quite achieved what they were looking to do. so it's very, very complex, and it is very, very costly if they implement what they want to do. >> host: just one statistic as far as the southern border is concerned, the u.s./mexico border about 2,000 miles, the fence that currently exists about 650 miles. >> guest: right. but, you know, a fence is not appropriate for every situation, and what they have is not a continuous fence like the great wall of china. they have a series of barriers that make it difficult to come across or make it more likely that you're going to be caught. and what happens a lot in this debate is that there's a static idea of the border. the border is dynamic, and the enforcement has to be dynamic. what you have to realize is as they enforce different sectors, the challenge moves to a different place. so the border patrol closed off the -- or made tighter -- the urban areas where people were coming a

that are tough aren't - we have the technological advances. the things that are tough are, you know, there are no service people on the island, so if you need a plumber or an electrician, you know you're on your own, or try and get one from the mainland to come out. it's tough. c-span: so your boat is how long again? how big is it? >> guest: oh my lobster boat is 35 feet long. c-span: the name? >> guest: duffy & duffy is the manufacturer of the boat, and the name of the boat is the mattie belle named after my grandmother. c-span: and your grandmother on which side and what was her full name? >> guest: yes, my dad's mother who is mattie belle robinson. c-span: and there is a robinson name on the island, isn't there somewhere? >> guest: yes, there is. there's a robinson's point, which is where the lighthouse is. c-span: so when you go out fishing, do you have a cell phone now? >> guest: i do not. i'm a dinosaur. i'm like one of the only people probably on the planet who does not own a cell phone but i have a vhf radio. c-span: and can you talk to ground? can you talk to your mother or

for neighborhood technology in chicago said what happens if instead of measuring co2 per mile, we start measuring per person or per household? because there are only a certain number of us, and we can choose toly in places where we -- to live in places where we pollute more or less. if you look at per household, the red and green flip, and by far the healthiest place you can live is in the city. manhattanites use a third of the electricity of people in dallas. why? well, they're heating and cooling their neighbors, right? their apartments are touching. but even more importantly than that is the less driving they're doing. transportation is the greatest single contributor to, um, most civilians' greenhouse gas. you know, in our daily lives the biggest choice we can make, you know, when i built my house in washington, d.c., i cleaned the shelves on the solar water heater, i got the super insulation, i got the bamboo flooring, i have a wood burning stove that supposedly a log burn anything my wood burning stove contributes less co2 to the environment than if it were left to decompose in the forest b
technology trade show. more programming next week. >> julia loved her time in the white house. she said in their her memoirs it was like a bright and beautiful terrain. the most wonderful time of my life, so i think they get you some idea of how much she enjoyed eating first lady and how she felt that her husband had finally achieved the recognition he deserved. see the federal government appropriated almost $90 billion to rebuild afghanistan. monday special inspector general for afghanistan reconstruction, john sopko delivered a report on you for spending so far show in the u.s. government spent over $7 million on a largely unused building. his remarks from the center for strategic and international studies in washington d.c. rfid the minutes.

pipeline network built with sound environmental stewardship and the best modern technology. nothing has changed about the security to be gained from using more fuel produced at home and by close and stable ally. and nothing has changed about the need for america to remain a place where businesses still build things. we hope that you will follow through on your directive of march 22, 2012, to federal agencies to move forward vital energy infrastructure like keystone x.l. the state of nebraska is nearing completion of the new pipeline route within nebraska. with that process near completion, we look forward to an affirmative determination of national interest soon." that letter we sent to the president in november. a bipartisan letter, nine republican senators, nine democrat senators. to date we've received no direct response from the white house despite that there's clearly strong bipartisan support for the project. the only response we received was not from the white house, but rather from the state department. and let me read that letter, very short too. from david s. adams, assistant
. they view it as an opportunity to be involved, cutting edge of technology with regards to cyber, develop tremendous skills there, and be able this then go out and use those skills in the private sector. he's got a lot of young people, a lot of young, very bright people anxious to participate in the effort. coming out of the military academies. >> uh-huh. now, turning to the subject of the hearings in benghazi specifically. i would like to talk a little bit about what you learn from the events and how to advise the next secretary of defense to prepare for similar events, and how the department should adapt to the next generation, obviously, al-qaedaing and other terrorist groups and cyber attacks, both of which pose serious threats to the security of our homeland. i'm specifically concerned that this is an attack in a country that the u.s. helped liberate from decades of dictatorship, that day, september 11, 2012, witnessed demonstrations in other countries part of the arab spring, countries that were supported -- that we supported through the voice of democracy, but throughout the countr
sands is being accomplished in situ, a technology that makes oil sands carbon footprint comparable to conventional drilling. in fact, the oil sands industry has reduced greenhouse gas emissions per barrel of oil produced by an average of 26% since 1990, with some facilities achieving reductions as high as 50%. today, heavy crude oil from the middle east and even from california produces more carbon emissions over its life cycle than the canadian oil sands. let me repeat that. today, heavy crude that we import from the middle east and even some of the california heavy crudes produce more carbon emissions over their life cycle than canadian oil sand oil. we also need to factor in that if the pipeline is not built from alberta to the united states, a similar pipeline will be built to canada's pacific coast. that's what i show right here on this chart. from there, the oil will be shipped across the pacific ocean, a much larger sensitive ecosystem than the sand hills which we're not even going through now, to be refined at facilities in china with weaker environmental standards and more
